United Way of Kenosha County is working in partnership with Carthage College, the Kenosha County Job Center, Gateway Technical College, UW-Parkside and other community organizations to support the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, which provides income tax preparation services for low-to moderate income individuals and families earning $54,000 or under. Financial education resources will be available at each of the tax sites. For more
